Housing Development

Dear Parents,

I am writing to update you on our consultations regarding the proposed housing development opposite the school site.

Since our protest in July 2019, Mr Goodier and I have met with Bloor Homes and Rochford District Council on several occasions over this last year.  We have also joined with Holt Farm Junior School and King Edmund School in several of these meetings, as they naturally share the same welfare concerns for their children.  Our issues with the development plans remain unchanged – namely the main access road being created directly opposite the school and the vast size of the development. 

The safety and welfare of our children and families accessing school is our main priority, but as a community school, we completely understand the wider impact a development of this size will have on Rochford.

As a Governing Body, we have used the Re-consultation period issued by Rochford District Council as an opportunity to write to the Council again and we urge as many parents and families to do this do if you share our concerns: planning.applications@rochford.gov.uk reference 20/00363/OUT

With best wishes,

Charlotte Scriven

Chair of Governors,
